Work begins on plan to grow offshore delivery

Education New Zealand is developing an international delivery plan to provide a clear and comprehensive rationale for New Zealand's involvement in the international delivery of education and training. Its findings will be integrated with the International Education Strategy, currently underway. 

ENZ Industry Development Manager Adele Bryant said the plan will be comprehensive. 

“It will identify and prioritise opportunities, approaches and models that will be competitive and build the best long-term value proposition for New Zealand,” Bryant said. 

The Observatory on Borderless Higher Education (OBHE), in partnership with the International Graduate Insight Group (i-graduate) have been selected by ENZ to develop the plan. 

OBHE is a higher education think tank with a unique remit focussed on ‘borderless’ education.  Richard Garrett, Director of OBHE will lead a team of 8-9 based in the USA, UK, Malaysia, Australia and New Zealand. Some of the team members will be well-known to the New Zealand education sector including Stephen Connelly, Director of GlobalEd Services in Australia and Kyla Steenhart, Director of i-Graduate in New Zealand.

The views of interested education providers will be sought over the next three months. The plan is due to be published in May 2017.

What's in it for me?
